Usually, politicians remember the party they are in at the present. Sometimes, they chant the slogan of the party they used to be in till recently. But, what if the politician does not know which party he is in? Veteran politician and two-time PCC chief in undivided AP, Dharmapuri Srinivas is currently in such a dilemma.

The other day when the scribes asked him about his political affiliation, he said he does not know which party he is in currently. He further quipped that the scribes should ask KCR as to which party S is in. D Srinivas is a Rajya Sabha MP from the TRS. But, he is not being invited to the TRS meetings and even the parliamentary party meeting. Though technically he is in the TRS, he is practically not part of the TRS. To highlight his status, DS made these comments.

He also defended his two sons being in two different, in fact opposing parties. He said both his sons were like his two eyes and that they were capable of taking decisions on their own. He said there was nothing wrong in his two sons being in two different political parties. “It is their individual choice,” he said.

DS's elder son Dharmapuri Sanjay was till recently in the TRS, but has announced that he would join the Congress Party and work under the leadership of Revanth Reddy. He was the first mayor of the Nizamabad Municipal Corporation. His younger son Dharmapuri Aravind is a BJP MP from Nizamabad. He has defeated KCR's daughter K Kavitha in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
